Band Of Horses: we talk to Ben Bridwell about the Band Of Horses’ take on DIY funding, Willie Nelson and beards.

LoneLady: ahead of her Castlepalooza appearance this weekend, the Manchester musician talks electronic pop with Sinead Gleeson

Cathal Coughlan: the Microdisney and Fatima Mansions leader talks to Tony Clayton-Lea about his new album, “Rancho Tetrahedron”.

Plus: reviews of music releases from Arcade Fire (CD of the Week slot for “Suburbs”), Wavves, Jaill, Menomena. Cignol, Grasscut, The Soundcarriers, Cathal Coughlanand others, and new movies on the block including The A-Team, The Karate Kid, South of the Border and My Night With Maud.

All this and more in The Ticket, in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The Workman’s Club sneak preview: any OTR readers who want to have a look at new Dublin venue The Workman’s Club, located on the quays beside the Clarence Hotel, before it opens in September can do so at 9.30pm tonight. Venue booker Karl Geraghty stresses that it’s not a launch (no free drink, no bands playing, no industry gobshites networking) and more a chance for city music fans to take a look before the action starts. He says it was partly inspired by OTR reader Quint’s recent comment about the place.

DJ-ing plug: I’ll be DJ-ing at Glider at the Odessa Club (Dame Court, Dublin 2) on Friday night. Doors open at 10pm and admission is free (just tell the people at the door that you’re going to Glider).

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules. Declare an interest where one should be declared. Plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Plugs which plug the same stuff every week will also be deleted – if people ain’t interested by now, you should really get the message. Have a fabulous weekend, especially if you’re heading to Castlepalooza, Indiependence, Cork X Southwest, Spraoi or Lenny.
